Summer Wear For Women Over The Age Of Fifty

No matter how hard I tried, I still couldn’t wear all my summer dresses, skirts, tops, tanks, shorts, shoes or sandals this season, which only means one thing – it’s time for a major purge!

Last Saturday I had a Yard Sale which was a bust, perhaps it was the weather or the holiday but I ended up donating over 10 boxes of clothing and household items to Goodwill.

My weight fluctuated this summer and went down 14 lbs thanks to the Medifast Program, however, I still haven’t reached my targeted weight goal.  Fortunately, Sheath Dresses are very flattering so they will always be a part of my wardrobe.

This is one of my favorite sleeveless Sheath dresses and I have always wanted to find and thank the woman who donated it to Goodwill!

If your weight fluctuates due to menopause or other health issues, Goodwill and consignment shops are perfect places to find clothing on the cheap.  During the month of September, clothing is only $2 on Tuesday at Goodwill in Delaware and Delaware County which will save you even more.

These were the yellow wedge shoes from Avon which I had worn with the dress in yesterday’s post.  If you look closely at my leg, you will see the beginning of a poison ivy outbreak which is in it’s 2nd week!

This is also the yellow purse from Avon which I wore with the dress in that post.

what to wear in the summer

Tomorrow I am going to go through all my closets and pack up any clothes and shoes that I did not wear this summer – no exceptions!  accessories sold at Avon

However, I will keep sleeveless tanks like these as I can always transition them to the fall with a sweater or blazer.  There’s that yellow purse again!

Wearing Walmart

The sleeveless tank was also thrifted from Goodwill and the skirt and statement necklace was purchased from Walmart.

The black sandals turned out to be my summer favorites and who would have thought that I could have found them at Sears!   Well time to get into that closet and get rid of anything not worn this or last season and next week we will kick off the outfits with maxi skirts and dresses.
